    Hi guys first post
    I recently had a bit of trouble with some spyware / adware that was causing some of the keys to mess up on my laptop keboard and when clicking google results would link me to a slighlty related site to my search selling something or advertising. Also occasionally it seemed the down key would get 'stuck' on so it mas continuoisly scrolling down the page, through menu's, files etc. I ran a few virus scans (Eset, superantispyware, malwarebytes) and deleted 4 pieces of adware.
    Anyway the problem with messed up keys and random linking has ceased but occasionally it seemed the down key would get stuck on again. Even when i restart and it says would you like to start windows normally or with recovery console it is scrolling through them

    Im currently typing this through a usb keyboard and i have completely disconnected the laptop keyboard from the motherboard.
    I've run more virus scans and haven't found anything and the only thing im left thinking is it could be a software/driver issue or the actual keyboard

    Can anyone help?

    Re-connect the laptop's keyboard then go into the Bios Setup, if the down arrow is still 'stuck' the keyboard is probably to blame, if it isn't stuck you may still have some malware or windows itself is messed up.

    Let us know.
